Ujjayi Pranayama. Stage 3
Inhale and restrict the air flow to make the sound "sssss". Keep the
sound constant and smooth. Exhale make a sound with the mouth closed
that sounds like "hhhhha".
Don't hold the breath yet just warm up and work on smooth sound when
inhaling and exhaling. Work on the changes in breath becoming
smoother and longer also. This occurs when the breath crosses from
inhalations to exhalations and exhalations to inhalations.

Do this for at least 5 minutes.
Then progress towards holding after the inhalation
and then the
exhalation as well.
Inhale restrict the air flow to make the sound "sssss". Keep the
sound constant and smooth.
Do this breath as for as long as it takes to feel open
through the energy flow that the breath takes. Look for blockages
and remove them as you perform this pranayama. They can be opened by
creating more space or by thinking the flow open with the conscious
mind but first the flow of air and energy must be understood by
continual observation and practice.
